Abstract

This chapter is part of a continuing series of analyses of images of later life.It focuses on the link between photographic image and text, comparing a published collection of the work of the celebrated American photographer, Imogen Cunnigham, and one edition of a UK magazine aimed at older people. It concludes that both offer the viewer an image of how old age might be different to the lived reality.
